Another birthday card

Hiya sweeties!

Today has got to be quick, quick, quick as I'm running out the door!
I've had this Gorjuss Girl for a while now and she was the only one that I still had not inked up yet. So when I needed an image for a quick card she was the first one that came to mind. I mixed her with the TGF cloud from the Up, up and away set to make it look like she was floating high up into the sky. On the inside I've written, "Let yourself get carried away today."
It's a pretty simple card but I like the quiet yet happy vibe it has going on. :)

Oh man, I've really got to go now... hope you all have a great weekend! Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and PTI
paper- Basic Grey (Romani)
stamps- Sugar Nellie (Gorjuss Girl), The Greeting Farm (Up, up and away set)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox creamy brown chalk ink
American Crafts rub-on sentiment
Kaiser Craft gems
string
Sakura clear glaze pen
Copic markers:
skin- E000, E00, E11, r20
hair- C5, C7, C9, 100
clothes- RV00, RV10, RV11, Y13, Y17, TG00, YG01, YG03, YG0000, R22, R24, R29
sky/clouds- B0000, B000, Y000

So cute! I love the bright red balloon. Good thing you reminded me about the Up, Up and Away set. I almost bought another stamp set just for the cloud. Duh! I need to look through all my stuff more often so that doesn't happen!
